does SFLAN have any tips for getting Wireless access in the presidio in an area which the services providers don't service with DSL or Cable modem. I just moved to an area called North Fort Scott, about 300 yards from the Toll Plaza Visitor center of the GG Bridge. Is SFLAN an option out here? Any suggestions?

please share if you find answers here. I move into NFS next week. I netstumbled around last week and found many wireless APs. By the topos, SFLAN1 might be line of sight if there's enough gain to see through the trees. Several lines were hosted on the pbi.net network. I'm currently on a SBC DSL so I'm going to try to bug them some more. The PBI lines were in the baker beach area. There's a link SSID Beachhouse (I think) that was getting a Megapath feed. If I can't get someone to serve a line to my new address, I'll be getting an antennae and experimenting.

I'm on Ramsell Court off Armistead. No luck with reasonable access there. Megapath has a line into one of the neighbors, but it's slow and expensive. Another has a sattelite with same problem, and against Presidio Rules. Count me in if you want help pushing the phone company. You can also call the presidio Telecom people who will tell you PacBell access stops out around Baker Beach Apts.

I am on Armistead. I haven't climbed on the roof with the binoculars yet but I think I have a LOS on SFLAN1. I spent some time on the phone with SBC and apparently they had scheduled to have a repeater station in to service us by now but spending cuts as a result of lost revenues from 9/11/01 made this not happen yet. They are supposed to contact me as soon as the repeater goes in. In the mean time I'll report back with the results of my SFLAN experimentation. Yagi should arrive in a week and we'll see what happens. If it all works I can add an additional AP that you might be able to pull a LOS on.

Does Presidio Telecom offer a dial-up internet ISP?

We are already a DSL subscriber but need additional, off-site accounts.

I'm unable to get an ip address. Is there a dhcp server running? What kind of access point is it?

you should be able to get a dhcp address. I wrote to clif cox to see if he can make sure that is all running (it is tricky because the dhcp requests have to be forwarded over serveral routed network hops).

the boxes are linux boxes by clif systems (see link on www.sflan.org)

This such an exciting project! I'm still unable to receive an IP from sflan8. It might be something on my side of things. I'm trying to connect with a Linksys WET11. Do you know of any special configuration that I need to do?

After work, I'll try again.

The sflan project is fantastic and exiting. I hope to contribute soon.

I am located at Parnassus and Clayton. I can physically see sflan8. On my XP laptop I get low signal strength (with bargraph at 2 out of 5) using a Linksys WUSB11 adapter. The wireless connection shows the IP address but it is not your listed 209.237.240.120, the Subnet Mask is also shown.

I am a novice with networking. How do I set up a connection to the Internet? I have tried the XP "Network Setup Wizard" and "New Connection Wizard" without success.

If everything is working (and it sounds like dhcp is working), then you should be able to associate with that wireless node like you would any wireless access point. I think you select which network ssid in your task tray.

for basic networking, pls a user near you.

I'm still having problems connecting to sflan8. I'm not sure if it's my setup or the dhcp server. I was wondering if there are people connected to sflan8 via dhcp?

I should clarify a little. I'm able to connect to the access point but I'm unable to receive an IP. I have tried 2 wireless network adapters with the same result. I suspect there might be a problem with the dhcp server.
